To My Grandson, Joey
Sixteen and a half years ago, you stole my heart …
Tonight, in an elegant black tuxedo, you captured it again.
You are grown and handsome, but I still see that little boy,
And instantly, a million memories come rushing through my heart.
I see you sitting on your mom’s lap, with a huge smile ear to ear,
Now I watched you tonight, glowing as you watched your Lauren’s face.
I see you always with your Tata, while his huge hands held you tenderly,
Tonight I see you towering next to your grandpa, while his hands arrange your tie.
Joey, I am so proud of you,
You will ALWAYS have my heart—
I love you always and forever.
